I’d like to acknowledge and applaud the supporters and the supervisor writers of this letter.
I believe that President Obama must be asked at every stop about his stance on marijuana. We have Mittens on tape, laughing away at a reporters question on medical marijuana in Colorado. It’s been the number one topic since he’s been in office and he continues to avoid addressing it and has backpedalled. If it’s left to the States and we in Colorado pass Amendment 64 (regulate as alcohol - over 21 can purchase without medical card & tax it = $$$$$ millions for state) which also allows for growth and sales of hemp, I’m sure the farmers that stand to make serious bank will want to be assured and reassured the Feds won’t come after them.
Why are some people refusing to see that the money brought into to the states could save them? What are people afraid of? Did you know, we have to import hemp? We can’t grow it here in the US.
President Obama should not get away with saying he was keeping his hands off the states and then sending the Justice Department in to close them down!
Add in the media spinning this November election into a very close one & in states where marijuana issues are on the ballot, neither candidate addressing our questions. Other states we need to band together and work together and get our answers. These are important questions!
Will someone please explain to me how both the Democratic Party nominee for President, #BarackObama and the Republican Party nominee, #mittensromney can both come to #Colorado (a 9 electoral votes) swing state and just IGNORE the #marijuana#yeson64#Amendment64#RegulateMarijuana plant in the corner. We are voting on Amendment 64, regulating marijuana like alcohol (personal use, sure! up to an oz, over 21 only, millions (40 a year) to a public schood fund, hemp, the list goes on and on) and the Presidential Nominees * lights*** ACtion!!!@@STARS@@- neither of them are talking about it. These two people are coming here and campaigning and not even addressing the people of #Colorado who are voting on Regulating Marijuana like Alcohol this November. WTF??? President #Obama has refused to answer every question he has gotten on drugs, on reclassification of Marijuana from a schedule 1 drug (thanks again for going after that DEA lady #JaredPolis - xxoo) to the fact the people here in Colorado are voting on whether a over 21 year old can go the the store and buy some cannabis. For personal use. Or for medicinal purposes. And get taxed out the wazoo. We have seen how much money this can and will bring in. I am furious at +Barack Obama for not even acknowledging what he has been asked and asked and asked and asked for a direct answer to. Every single time he has an open forum, every single time.. What is the #1 question that he gets asked? What about marijuana? Why did you say you would leave the states alone? You said it wasn’t going to be high priority when, in actuality you, #BarackObama have been worse than#shrub (sorry.. bush). Your raids and closures in #California and #Oakland were terribly unfair. I seriously was under the impression, I don’t know, maybe it was your use of the word “transparency”, that when the people asked a question of our elected President, we would get some sort of response. I voted for you last time, why *&*&^ should I vote for you now? As I said when I appeared on #TheShadowConventions on #HuffingtonPost , even if +Barack Obama had the “brass” to say, I give you my word, we will talk about this after my re-election & I promise you I will listen to you and leave the states alone. That would be enough to win my vote. Otherwise, for the first time in my voting career, and I was the first bunch of 18 years old to vote, wayyy back when, I will not be voting #Democrat but rather the party I align with most, #GreenParty , and Dr. Jill Stein. This is seriously like President Obama and the other guy are walking around a huge elephant and pretending it’s not there. Why are you #BarackObama so scared? Do you know how many of us #Vote??? This election is yours to lose. I really hope you don’t but you’re going to have to #EarnMyVote What you should be scared of, is losing Colorado because Gary Johnson takes votes away from you because he’s running on a Pro-Marijuana platform. That could happen. It’s up to you.
Latest endorsement for Amendment 64 in Colorado!!
Melissa Etheridge knows firsthand how effective medical marijuana is and how silly it is to forbid use.
Join with me in Voting Yes on Amendment 64 this November in Colorado.
I had to waste my vote on Obama because I don’t want mitts to win. Would I vote for him if that threat didn’t exist? No way in hell. I would vote for Dr. Jill Stein of the Green Party.
Did I get a call from the Dems asking me to please, please vote for Obama? Yup.
Did I tell them why I didn’t want to? Yup.
Their response, I know, I know but please still vote for him. We’ve heard ‘rumours’ that he will be better the next four years. Uh huh.. sure you have.
This country needs a different system.
I did not vote for anyone in the running in Boulder County, except for Jared Polis. I did not and will not support Rollie Heath. Here we have the state senator, a Democrat, who doesn’t vote the party line.
I did vote YES on 64 because I believe the war on drugs is a sham. We have spent so much money trying to stop marijuana over so many years. It’s time to try something new. It’s time to regulate marijuana like alcohol. Tax it. The money can go to the schools, we can create new jobs, we can show the US Government how out of touch they are. We can grow and sell hemp.
Blech. If mitts wins, I’m out of here and moving to Uruguay. They have beaches & marijuana.
But, I’m afraid I might get tested and the alcohol would show up in my urine.
Why worry about alcohol showing up? It’s legal, and it’s not like it’s
methadone, heroin or oxy.
Would you want to work some place that was that uptight anyway?
Always having to worry about a random test after a weekend?
Here’s the truth.
I’d really like to have a hit or two or three of my delicious cannabis.
I have not smoked or ingested any cannabis since the 1st of April.
I don’t like drinking.
Cannabis is legal for over 21’s in the state of Colorado (details are still getting worked out, but the people of Colorado voted for Amendment 64).
I have a red card as I use cannabis to relieve my back pain, calm me down, sleep better, and also as I would if I drank wine. I enjoy medicating recreationally before watching a movie.
Why should someone who enjoys a few tokes once or twice a week be made to feel like a criminal?
Why should cannabis be considered so bad, when alcohol is the real problem?
Why should a work place be so frigging uptight about legal use?
I know the wheels are turning in the US as far as cannabis is concerned but can’t they turn a tad faster?
